The entrance fee was only $200/team last year, and the final pot was around $4,000.
We take $1,000 off the top of the final pot, and put it towards a SuperBowl Party... the winner has to buy at least one keg for the SB party, from his winnings.
2nd place wins a nice chunk, but I can't remember how much, and 3rd and 4th basically get their entrance fees back.
We also have a mid-season Pro Bowl where of the three divisions put up an all star team made of players from only from the teams in the division. Those three teams go head to head, and the losing two divisions have to pony up a keg of whatever beer the winning division likes.
The keg is purchased the next weekend for a rib-cook off between league members.
It's a kick ass league that demands social activity from it's members.
Last year's SB party had 5 kegs that were floated, 987 jello shots that were made at a pre-party on Friday night before the SB, catered BBQ, Lasagna, Buffalo Wild Wings and at least one 1/2 gallon of liquor from each of the 11 losing owners.
The police only came once, and nothing was broken..!
Wow, I need to be in a league like that. I can't even get one person I know to join a league.
